    Default The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

    I'm planning on doing this ride on May 23rd on my R80ST.

    The ride is a fundraiser through the Movember organization, raising awareness and money for both Prostate Cancer and Men's Mental Health.

    If would like to make a donation, you can do it here => https://gfolk.me/PeterMiller404827

    This is an effort my wife’s former firm supported through individual partner donations. I think a former colleague of hers rides in the event. So Pete’s participation is a great way for us to stay involved. They do good work. Donation sent. Thanks Pete!

    It varies (wildly) by chapter.

    Pete is doing it so you don't have to. What can he put you down for? ;-)

    Dunno. What are you down for and what's the average donation from salon people?

    My donation is listed on his donation page linked in his original post.

    Just seemed that people missed that Pete was already participating, not considering whether to do it and asking for reviews. Good natured prodding then. No arm twisting.

    Thanks Pete, donation made. I just lost my father to prostate cancer, so this one hits close to home.

    Why another bump?

    The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride has been going strong for 10 years!

    In that time, they have raised over $29 million dollars for research and raising awareness of two critical issues effecting men...Prostate Cancer and Mental Health!

    The thing is, every little bit counts...it all adds up!

    Please consider making a donation!

    Bump with a week to go!

    Just got my motorbike back after close to twelve weeks in the shop.

    Had a bit of a health scare that started on Mother's Day, spent four days in the hospital, but I am all good and cleared to ride with no restrictions!

    Reminder that life is precious...PLEASE consider making a donation.

    Yikes! Glad you are ok!? 4 days is a long time for a hospital stay these days.

    DJ...thank you for the donation, and thank you for the bump!

    I am truly humbled, as I have raised an amount that far exceeded what I thought possible.

    That said, this is a worthy cause, funding and research for Prostate Cancer and Men's Mental Health.

    I am grateful for all donations, regardless of amount, and there is still plenty of time to make one if you haven't done so already.

    The ride takes place Sunday, and I am excited to participate.

    Thanks again!

    So, the ride was awesome and I managed to raise $1,651 all together for Prostate Cancer and Men's Mental Health. Thanks to all who donated...I'm sure you can still make a donation if you would like to.

    What would a thread be without photos ... here's a big picture dump comin' at you...
